High Summer

The great flashy flowers and bushes and trees have almost all gone to seed.  One exception is the red, pink and white crape myrtles.  They are buzzing with bees.

What remain are more modest: perennials, which died in large numbers in the  strange winter just past, have come back in strength as though to compensate.  And annuals, many fragrant.

And the dense, impenetrable army of corn stalks, 10 foot high.   White  and bi-colour corn, sweet, succulent.
